The Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) recently honored the University of Colorado for its role in helping to launch the association 10 years ago, and for developing initiatives that support the state’s biotech system.
Kate Tallman and Rick Silva of CU’s Technology Transfer Office received the award last week at the Marriott City Center in Denver.
Said April Giles, CBSA President and CEO, “The Colorado BioScience Association would not be here today without the strong foundation that was put in place 10 years ago, and tonight we’re celebrating that groundwork while we highlight the achievements being accomplished now, which will help propel the industry and our association forward over the next 10 years.”
As initial founders of CBSA, Colorado State University, Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority (FRA) and CU were recognized for understanding the value of a statewide organization providing networks, educational resources and advocacy to advance the growth of the bioscience cluster in Colorado. Their investment in the association since 2003 provided the ability for CBSA to get off the ground and grow to a mature organization recognized as one of the top five nationally.
CBSA thanked CSU, FRA and CU for their vision 10 years ago, not only for the foundation of CBSA but also for creating initiatives that have fostered the development of commercial technologies in Colorado.
